The chatter is getting a little louder as the time draws closer. Hillary Clinton will make a decision to run for President, presumably in early 2015.

At the same time, speculation is growing that our present FLOTUS may have her eyes on the Senate seat in Illinois presently held by Sen. Mark Kirk (R). Kirk, a stroke survivor, has shown himself to be a fighter, battling his stroke to return to the duties of being the junior Senator from Illinois. But if a powerhouse figure such as Michelle Obama were to enter the race to challenge him in 2016, escpecially of Hillary is at the top of the ticket, does Kirk have the fortitude to wage that type of battle? Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emmanuel (D) is also one who would be a beneficiary of a run by both Hillary and Michelle. Pollsters are showing that his reelection prospects are in trouble, but if both Hillary and Michelle were on a November 2016 ballot, he might ride their coattails back into office for another term.

Of course, all this assumes that the American electorate could stomach MORE Clinton years and MORE Obama years.

President William Howard Taft went on to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, and served as the Chief Justice.

So the idea of the current occupant of the White House ending up wearing the robe of the Justice’s isn’t that far-fetched. One could easily see, should Hillary Clinton run and be elected as our next President, her appointing Barack Obama to the bench when a vacancy occurs.

JAMES offers a different scenario, and perhaps one a bit scarier.

Imagine a seat opens on the US Supreme Court due to the retirement of any one of the Justices before November 2016. Barack Obama has to nominate someone to fill that seat. Our “Narcissist in Chief” can think of NO ONE more qualified than Barack H. Obama. He nominates himself and is confirmed, leaving Biden’s lifelong dream of being POTUS fulfilled, even if only for a short time. Add to that, if this were to occur in the near future, that a “President Biden” would need to nominate a Vice President…… Hillary Clinton.

All of this should give everyone pause, in light of the President’s apparent lack of following the law. Let us hope that there are no vacancies any time soon at the Court.

From The Week:

Yet Bush has also netted more than $2 million from his work as a board member with Tenet Health Care, according to The New York Times‘ Michael Barbaro. That tie could prove troublesome for Bush if he runs for president in 2016 because Tenet, Barbaro writes, “aggressively encouraged Americans to sign up for insurance under the [Affordable Care Act] and trumpeted the legislation as a boon to the company’s finances.”

From The Hill:

House Republican leaders got an earful in two separate private meetings Wednesday from conservatives fuming over their move last week to pass a Medicare payment fix without a full House vote.

The leadership on Thursday had abruptly put up a bill to prevent a cut in Medicare reimbursements to doctors, passing it by voice vote rather than holding a recorded roll-call vote. Few members were on the House floor to object, angering conservatives who accused the leadership of subverting the democratic process.

I’m getting used to being deceived by the Obama administration, but when my own leaders do it, it’s not acceptable at all,” Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) said

One would think that Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) is not thrilled with the moderate, albeit RINO, stances that his colleague Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). Yet, the junior Senator from Kentucky has endorsed the senior Senator from Kentucky in this year’s closely watched Senate race. McConnell is facing a Tea Party primary opponent, and if he squeaks through that round in May, he will face a hard battle with a Democrat with Bill Clinton in her corner.

So to get Paul’s endorsement, did McConnell play politics with family in choosing his campaign team. Perhaps that question should be addressed to his campaign manager, Jesse Benton. Mr. Benton, according to Wikipedia, “is a political consultant and libertarian activist known for working with conservative and libertarian organizations like Americans for Tax Reform, the Liberty Coalition, and the American Conservative Union. Benton is strongly associated with the Paul family, serving as a high-ranking staffer for both Ron Paul and Rand Paul.”

Benton’s “strong association” with the Paul family may come from his marriage to Valori Pyeatt. Ms. Pyeatt’s mother is Lori Paul Pyeatt, who happens to be Ron Paul’s daughter and Rand Paul’s sister.

Politics and family…. Family and Politics!!

state of america today

So, under the “ALAN COLMES” theory of democracy, if you challenge the President of the United States in the election process, and you LOSE that election, you forfeit your personal right to freedom of speech and expression!! And that applies EQUALLY to your wife of more than four decades!!

From his column in the Huffington Post, Alan Colmes writes:

Mitt Romney, rather than gracefully accepting defeat, continues to let us know he would have been a better president. Ann Romney, too, has expended energy bashing President Obama, ungraciously. Now comes a Wall Street Journal op-ed via Mitt Romney telling us what a failed leader the president is.

Colmes, for his liberal-biased part, feels that it is un-American for anyone, let alone Mitt and Ann Romney, to point out what is patently obvious to most of the rest of us, and apparently to Vladmir Putin and other world leaders, in that Barack Obama is a FAILED and WEAK PRESIDENT. History will eventually show that, to date, he is perhaps the WORST and WEAKEST President ever to sit in the Oval Office. (I’m sure Jimmy Carter is happy to have lived long enough to see someone “elevate” him from that role).

VA sends $4,000 bill to triple-amputee Purple Heart recipient after he spoke out against Obama

If you want to see where government-run healthcare gets you, look no further than what the VA is doing to Airman Brian Kolfage after he spoke out against Obama. Our veterans who sustained injuries in combat deserve the best treatment we can give them, but the VA just sent Purple Heart recipient Brian Kolfage a bill for $4,000.
